I've seen a couple of those overly energetic reporters, not quite to THAT level though. We need to channel that energy into map edits don't you think?

I may be naive but I have taken these repeated reports to mean interest in the map or at least in the route they are getting. The key word is "interest" for whatever their reason. I really don't think someone would be posting all those reports just for points. Not that the interest in necessarily positive but we do have their attention. Unfortunately it may be frustration which isn't usually a good thing.

Well, you certainly can't close that as "Not Enough Information" now can you? Maybe "TMI"!?

I don't know that this falls under "Jolly Drivers" but it is SURE to cause confusion! I just happened to stumble across it tonight.

Near me there is a country intersection and I happened to notice that a short section here had a one-way street. I should have noticed that it was locked at Level 5 by AndyPoms. He only does that for a reason, but I didn't notice that right away. Now, around here one-way is pretty rare out in the country roads. So I went to dig further and found the strangest thing.

When coming North on Newtown Turnpike the FIRST indication that you are going the WRONG WAY on a one-way street is WHEN YOU GET TO THE END. See attached screenshot!

I'm just going to have to drive down there tomorrow to see it for myself!

I ran into that the other day. Short-term construction completely blocking the road but there was no way to close the road. All I could do was report Construction.

View shows two paths ahead blocked off with poles. Okay, no problem. Now turn around.

Welcome to Hotel California.

I love the stop sign at the road on the left. Rather unnecessary I think.

It does look like you can squeeze through going straight ahead. When I was in Japan in the 60's there were many alleys blocked exactly that way to allow bicycles and small cars but block trucks. The poles were rather more substantial than in this view.
